This ex-office in Paris became the perfect dream home, combining the industrial style with personal glory! So happy I found this gem on Rum Hemma.
Protect yourself with style! This is such a fabulous and fun conversation starter! Found here
I have this strange love for circles. No corners or straight lines, just what goes around comes around! The shape isn’t too common in our homes (except for plates) but I think it creates a nice atmosphere, something to rest your eyes on in a world full of sharp corners and right angles.
Look how these circular object gives the interior of these rooms an extra umph!

Also love the simple idea of a circular mirror like this beauty from House Doctor
Or you can make one from a simple round IKEA mirror and a leather strap! Just look how great the mirror makes this bathroom look:
I love how concrete has worked its way into our homes lately, and yes, it may just be a passing trend, but I can’t help hoping it doesn’t. My very first favorite was this lamp from the Gotland-based Tove Adman:
It combines the classic and beautiful shape of light bulds with the discrete but trendy concrete, and for a reasonable price!
She is definitely my inspiration when it come to concrete and these beautiful candlesticks are another example of a classic shape in a new material:
Check out her other stuff here!
One of my quite recent favorites to put my hot pots on (‘het’ means hot in Swedish) is from Stenhårt
It puts a nice Scandinavian touch to the tablecloth from Zambia (Tribal Textiles)! (I’ll show you more of it later!)
But the absolutely best thing about concrete is that you can make your own personal stuff, with just a little bit of creativity! My mom made these beautiful candleholders and flowerpot, with normal plastic cups and bowls as molds!
If you’re a little more bold than my mom you can try these cool flowerpots!
Creative fields really are recycling heaven. And because we all have lots of old magazines at home that we don’t know what to do with (but, and here I’m speaking for myself, I can’t throw them out because it feels like such a huge waste of paper…) here’s an inspiring idea:
A magazine seat or foot rest! The best thing is, when you fancy a read, just unbuckle the belts! This one is called The Hockenheimer, designed by Sut Kutusu, but I’m thinking it would be a fun project to make one by yourself!
Books are a good and discrete way to express yourself in your interior. Whether you love classics or more recent works, having your favorite books around you gives you good reason to dream away into their worlds. Like traveling from your sofa.
I love this clothbound collection of classics from Penguin!
I chose these for my private collection:
